    Dominica is widely recognised as a world leader in responsible tourism. It was the first ever country to receive a Benchmark designation by international eco-tourism organisation Green Globe, back in 2004. The islands success comes from the fact that it has not had to develop a green tourism product put simply, sustainable tourism is the only kind of tourism Dominica has ever offered.

    The natural landscape and local people are key to Dominicas tourism industry. The island has no international chain hotels or large resorts and most businesses are locally owned and run. Local communities are the force behind hotels, guesthouses and tour companies, and in return, tourism benefits local villages and community projects both financially and through imparting knowledge and resources to help all Dominicans live a sustainable lifestyle.

    This video demonstrates why Dominica has earned its nickname The Nature Island and looks at how sustainable tourism is helping the island and its people to thrive.

    If you think Caribbean holidays are all about sun, sea, sand and cocktails, then think again. For travellers to the island of Dominica, the attractions lay mainly in the interior, exploring its stunning natural features.

    Dominica’s rugged landscape makes it a haven for hikers, with trails of varying levels through volcanic valleys, lush rainforests, past cascading waterfalls and even a Boiling Lake. With very little flat land and so much pristine rainforest, the best way to explore Dominica is on foot.

    A new long-distance walking trail is currently under development which will traverse the entire length of Dominica and highlight to walkers exactly why Dominica is known as ‘The Nature Island’. Known as The Waitukubuli Trail, after the Carib Indian name for the island meaning ‘tall is her body’, the trail will stretch 115 miles and take around two weeks to complete. The Waitukubuli Trail is set for completion in the next year, but many sections can already be enjoyed.

    The Caribbean island of Dominica is often confused with the Dominican Republic or simply forgotten about altogether, but it is a place that has its own unique charm.

    It’s known as the ‘Nature Island’ because of its amazing environment, but it’s also home to one of the last groups of Carib Indians, the Caribbean’s indigenous people. The Caribs lived here before Christopher Columbus arrived in the Americas. Since then, their numbers have dwindled to almost zero in much of the region because of years of brutal treatment from the Spanish, French and British - but in Dominica, hope remains.

    In the early 20th century, when only about 500 Caribs were left, a 3700 acre territory was established for them on the island’s east coast. Now they number around 3000.

    This video looks at the effect tourism has on Carib Culture.
